Dispatch from the African Bush: Zimbabwe

Dispatch from the African Bush: Zimbabwe
Greetings from the deep bush of Africa! My first week back in Africa has been a whirlwind tour through Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe.

The hanging bridges allow travelers to explore at their own pace the vibrancy of the cloud forest canopy, and be able to take in the amazing panoramic vistas, the wildlife that call those trees home and the hundreds of species of trees that harmonize and unify to create an incredible collage of colors, aromas and views.  There are several in Costa Rica that I can highly recommend, but to...
